    I Fight the Battle Everyday

    I am not sure what has happened here in Tennessee (maybe all the rain??) but there seems to be an explosion of baby squirrels everywhere!  I live in a wooded area, the the little guys are everywhere this summer.  Once I pulled into my driveway and there were TEN of them sitting there grinning at me.  Of course this has deepened my conviction to protect my bird feeders, and sent me and my husband on a quest to find the perfect solution.  We succumbed to all sorts of marketing and bought feeder after feeder, trying to keep the little snots out of the the sunflower seeds… we even tried good ole Tennessee country wisdom, and let me tell you tying s sock filled with moth balls onto your gazebo wall is NOT effective:)  But you will be excited to know that we finally came up with a solution– and it works!   It’s the “Yankee Flipper” and when a squirrel touches the bottom of it, it spins and flips them off.  There are really funny videos of this if you Google Yankee Flipper– but most of all it keeps those little buggers at bay!  A win for the home team!

    Testimonials

    We have bought many houses and so many properties over the years. This is our first investment property and we work with Jared for probably four years to find the right property. I have to say this was the finest real estate experience we have ever . We had some negative experiences with a couple of other agents, Jared went above and beyond the call of duty, And we will certainly use him for all of our real estate agent future.”
